i love Bike Snob's writing on cycling. He's everything the blurb always says - wry, cynical, funny but most of all I feel I would like to get together and talk bikes with him. It was interesting (as a London bike commuter) to get his take on cycling in London (shared lanes for buses, bikes and taxis - it could only work in a city where everyone is really, really polite - really? wow!) and Amsterdam. I loved his previous books and this was not a disappointment.
This was my first Bike Snob book (I'd never read the blog or heard of it) and I loved it. It was an impulse buy on my Kindle and I'm pleased I got it (I've since gone on to buy his other two books). The style is really friendly - it's as if your listening to a very literate friend tell you his tales of (almost) adventure... I'd recommend this to anyone who has even a casual interest in cycling.
